Cardi B is turning up her fashion dial in head-turning spread for The Fader July/August Issue. The reality television star slash rapper poses it up in a series of show-stopping looks paired with gorgeous hairstyles, including fiery orange curls, a scarlet rapunzel braid and jet black beachy waves.
Inside, the newly minted Atlantic Records signee talks about her meteoric rise from Instagram while never actually expecting fame, her passion for music and adjusting to the industry.
“I put out the ‘Lick’ video and I did [an Instagram] video the same day ranting, and my video ranting went more viral than my actual music video. “Now it’s like I gotta be more of an artist. And to be more of an artist, I gotta be more censored because my personality just overshadows everything.”
